Salisbury, Md. (9/15/18) – Salisbury University used a 21 point second half to propel to a 28-0 win over Kean University in NJAC football action on Saturday.
Kory Kenny led the Cougars (0-2, 0-1 NJAC) defense with 17 total tackles on the day, 11 solo stops.
Jack Navitsky tossed his first collegiate touchdown pass while rushing for 55 yards for the Sea Gulls (2-0, 1-0 NJAC). Kadarrius Campbell racked up two rushing touchdowns, both coming from within the five yard line.
After a scoreless opening quarter Jack Lanham engineered a nine play, 84-yard drive that was capped off by a Campbell two-yard touchdown run for a 7-0 Salisbury advantage.
That was all the scoring the opening half would produce as the teams headed to the locker room with the Gulls holding the slim 7-0 lead.
Coming out of the break, Navitsky put together a nine play, 81-yard drive for a 14-0 lead.
The score remained a two-touchdown advantage until the defense helped put the game out of reach late in the third quarter. With 3:35 left to play in the third Kean quarterback, Rylan Pangborn, rolled to his right looking to get the ball down field but was hit from behind by Matthew McFarland fumbling the football. McFarland scooped up the loose ball and returned it 35 yards for the touchdown and 21-point advantage.
Campbell added insurance in the fourth with his second touchdown of the afternoon, finishing off a seven play, 64-yard drive.
Pangborn was 14-of-21 for 135 yards on the day.
Kean returns home to host Southern Virginia University on Saturday.
